Ospreys migrate, hawks remain

Published October 16, 2019 / by Steve Berentson

These photos were taken at SHIP Preserve near the ferry terminal in Anacortes. The first is a shot I took a few days ago on a search to see if I could find ospreys that I had been told have likely headed south for the winter. I believe this is a hawk situated on a limb just below the osprey nest. Other shots include the same nest and hunting activity from summer. A beautiful bird, for sure.

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
